To assist in the accurate assessment of these needs, the plan shall include an identification of the social, economic and political factors in the community together with district-level housing and funding issues which will ultimately affect the success and effectiveness of the district building and renovation program.

Concurrent with efforts to identify those demographic factors affecting school enrollment, the plan shall include an analysis of present and future design needs of the district together with an assessment of those qualitative factors which reflect the characteristics and capacity of each school facility.

Those qualitative factors considered may include, but not be limited to:

1. State allocation building area standards.

2. Maximum student capacity according to designated student-teacher ratios.

3. Current student capacity based on current district program requirements.

4. Current and projected school enrollments for each grade level, based on residential housing growth patterns in accordance with city/county general plans and other demographic factors.

5. Student safety and welfare.

6. An evaluation of existing buildings and needs for modernization and renovation.

7. Estimated costs associated with meeting the district's facility needs.

The district Superintendent shall maintain procedures to encourage the cooperation of the district staff, parents, state and local governmental and planning agencies and other business and community representatives in this effort.
